hagel. the president's choice to succeed leon panetta as the next secretary of defense. hagel faces questions from the 26-member panel and at least three republicans on this committee have already said they won't support him including the ranking senator james inhofe. he made that clear in his opening statement. now it is extremely rare for presidential nominees not to be confirmed, are and are senator dick durbin, the senate whip, said all 55 members of the senate democratic caucus will vote for him. so, in order to break the filibuster, he'd need the support of just five republicans. and one republican senator, thad cochrane, has expressed his support. let's bring in "time" magazine's assistant med tore and "washington post" columnist and msnbc contributor. we've already gotten a little preview as we heard from inhofe what some of the discussion is going to be about. what are you looking for here, e.j.? >> first of all, i think hagel is actually in pretty good shape. i think a critical event in this whole battle was when he met with senator chuck schumer and schumer gave his bless
helps their case. >> the defense rests in the john leopold trial. when a verdict could be reached in the case. >> the ravens could be world champs at this time next week. >>> first, we were slipping and sliding. will tomorrow's commute be any better. let's take a lack at maryland's most accurate forecast. >> how about a different set of headaches. we'll have a somewhat challenging commute due to fog and not winter weather. right now we see a few light scattered showers. lower eastern shore reaching across from calvert county. here we go, clouds held tough. we were in for another gray dreary day. temperatures at the moment across central maryland just above freezing, which is good. upper 30s to mid-30s. as a result we're not worried about icy conditions, not to say if untreated spots stayed icy in corner areas you could have snow or ice sitting there but that will continue to melt. tonight i don't think we get down below freezing. milder air trying to get. it will be a chilly start but much mild ore -- milder. >>> the defense rested in the john leopold trial. we could get a verdict
to come tonight, the challenges ahead for a new defense secretary; war ravages mali, and destroys part of its cultural heritage; plus, a rare double arm transplant. but first, the other news of the day. here's hari sreenivasan. >> sreenivasan: a federal judge in new orleans gave the go-ahead today to a settlement with b.p. in the 2010 gulf oil disaster. the company agreed to plead guilty to manslaughter and other charges and to pay a record $4 billion in criminal penalties. the gulf disaster began with an oil rig explosion that killed 11 people. before the well was finally sealed, it spewed more than 200 million gallons of oil into the sea. senator john kerry of massachusetts was confirmed today to be secretary of state. the vote was 94-3, as the five- term democrat won the overwhelming approval of his colleagues. kerry is 69, and a former democratic presidential nominee. senators from both sides praised him in a rare show of bipartisan support. john has already built strong relationships with leaders across the world. which will allow him to step seamlessly into the role of secretary
that goes on occasionally, e.j., when we see confirmation of defense secretary, whether or not combat experience makes you better at this. he is obviously a decorated vietnam veteran. but i'm wondering how that will inform how he answers these questions today and what kind of defense secretary he would be. >> first of all, i want to say something. his views aren't extreme and chuck schumer would not endorse somebody, his views on foreign policy are middle of the road. he wouldn't endorse somebody who was extreme. i think his vietnam experience is important. it's been noted and it's important that you now have at state john kerry and you would have at defense chuck hagel, two veterans of vietnam who look back and say we are ib clind to be very cautious before we commit american lives to any kind of foreign intervention. we want to be able to tell the troops. and hagel has characterized himself as an old sergeant, wants to tell the truth, so we need to make this fight. i think the good thing this hearing if it went there instead of just kind of particular attacks or questions to hagel,
as he seeks to become the next secretary of defense. >> i believe, and i always have believed, that america must engage in the world, not retreat from the world but engage from the world. my record is consistent on 0 these points. >> even after meetings with dozens of senators over the last few weeks, hagel still fielded a volley of questions from members of the senate armed services committee. >> my time will expire, others are going to ask as to why you did this. i was asking for the accuracy. if you don't want to answer that, that's fine. >> i just said i did vote against it and i was going to explain why i voted against it. >> and they'll be asking you for your explanation. i want to get to three other 0 things and that's why it's critical we keeping moving along here. >> today's hearing comes after a neocon campaign on the airwaves against hagel's nomination and after a vigorous defense of the president's cabinet choices from vice president joe biden. >> to suggest that two war heroes, a bronze star, a purple heart, silver star, taking over both the state department and d
would need a lawyer. a criminal defense lawyer. the michigan detectives and the pennsylvania state police arrested him at his workplace, the comic bookstore. as he was led away after a later court appearance he loudly proclaimed that police had nabbed the wrong man. >> there's no way. no, i didn't do this. >> the cold case had turned red hot. michael george was returning to michigan and would stand trial for the first-degree murder of his wife. a case prosecutors knew would be hard to prove in the age of csi and show-me forensic evidence, that's because there was none. so it would come down to a single witness and his recollection of a solitary phone call he said he made on a friday the 13, 1990. >> coming up, a twist in court few would have predicted. >> initially, never crossed the line. after five hours you start to worry. >> when "the comic book murder volume 2" continues. that i just love to do every single day. ♪ it's the way i've made my living for over 30 years. ♪ every time we leave the dock, it's an adventure. the one thing people might not realize when they're going
